Lyrics

I turn the music down
But I don't know why
This is my house

I turn the music down
But I don't know why
This is my house

The best friend on the payroll
No, no, no
It's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
No, no, no, no

The best friend on the payroll
Oh, no, no, no
It's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out

More breakfast in bed
And I'll bring the paper in later

The best friend on the payroll
Oh, no, no, no
It's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
No, no, no, no

The best friend on the payroll
Oh, no, no, no
It's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out

More breakfast in bed
And I'll bring the paper in later

The best friend on the payroll
No, no, no
It's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
No, no, no, no

The best friend on the payroll
No, no, no, no
It's not gonna work out
It's not gonna work out
